Vdroop Pencil Mod a Success!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I did the pencil mod to my board, and no more vdroop.

So i was testing the OC of 3.6 on prime95, and it didnt fail but after 25 minutes temps shot up to 80 after having been around 60. I turned prime off immediately. I was at 1.5v. I am going down to 1.46 to try again, and making sure fan kicks in 100% at 55 or above.

I tried to do the pencil mod... and i dont think it worked for me....
I used a mechanical pencil.... and figured it would be okay because those ledsticks in there are very sharp... figured the mark would be good enough for voltage jumping.... but havent noticed any difference....

the zalman's are all "look good" coolers they do better than stock considerably. but definitely not the best of coolers in there price range. nice job I've haven't run into any hardware yet that I've needed to mod, but i hope too.

i shaded the resister right above the one you have marked. from what i have read, you can pick either one. anyway, i used a 2b pencil and kept drawing back and forth, now what my BIOS says is what actually i get from CPU-ID, no droopage. And under load my voltage stays the same too.

It all depends on airflow TBH. My idle temps are usually 27-28c (17-19c ambient) and at load they're usually 34-35c. But if I shut off my intake fan, my idle temps are about 35-36c idle and 45-47c load.
